Where did you find that Jim? Neither Newegg nor the Samsung site has it.

Excellent information Jim.

Tell me if you agree with my take-aways (all based on generalizations):
  • A MLC will last about 3 times longer than a TLC under extreme conditions.
  • Under average use a MLC has an approx. 10 year lifespan, a TLC about 5.
This, of course, ignores strategies to reduce writes and prolong the life of the drive.

A few pictures from AnandTech. And the difference is reflected in the pricing.

Also the 840 has more overprovisioning to compensate.

The lifespan suits me. I probably won't live as long myself - LOL. The prices at Newegg sales are a lot lower. The 128GB was $80 the other day.

Thanks Jim. What I took away from the article is that the 830 series is the best way to go since they say fewer bits per cell increases longevity.

I wish authors would explain things instead of saying TLC, MLC, MDX, and P/E. Well into it I found P/E must mean program/erase.

All in all I don't fret over my SSDs wearing out and I even defragged one of them.

That M4 is a really good deal. Too bad I just bought an OCZ Vector.
